Because *that* would be manifestly unfair.
Yes, that's a problem. But I don't see how we can avoid dealing with it directly. Avoiding being stalled by unfixed bugs of others by having a separate branch to continue working, inevitably leads to delayed releases. If people don't fix the issues in time, there needs to be direct pushback, leading to much less stuff getting in next time round. -- Sent via pgsql-hackers mailing list (firstname.lastname@example.org) To make changes to your subscription: http://www.postgresql.org/mailpref/pgsql-hackers
